Seek first to understand, then to be understood. It's good marketing.

A little girl was walking home from school with her mother.

"How was your day sweetie?" the mom said.

"Bad," the girl replied.  "I have a headache."

Surprised and concerned by her Kindergartner's pronouncement, the mother continued.

"Where does it hurt?"

The girl pointed directly at her stomach and said, "Right Here."

"Oh, no." said the mother.  "When you have a headache, it hurts here." She pointed to her forehead.  "When you have a tummy ache it hurts here." She pointed to her abdomen.

The girl fell quiet, pausing for a moment.

"Maybe when you have a headache it hurts your head, but when I have a headache it hurts my tummy."
